Volume 3 is a workout session, starting with the integration set from Volume I and continuing with the 18 Lohan Ch'i Kung Form as shown in Volume II. Very little discussion is offered in this volume, instead concentrating on following along with me and matching the breathing as much as possible with my inhales and exhales. Some tips to enjoying this workout: 1. Find a peaceful protected from the elements place to consistently work on this form.
2. Be mindful of the subtle changes within your body. 3. Strive to breathe slowly and elongate your inhales and exhales. 4. Listen to the sounds of your inhales and exhales 5. Watch your hands - Where attention goes, energy flows. This is one of the Truths of the Universe. 6. Control your movements in the transitions from posture to posture seamlessly so as to foster a moving meditation without abrupt static disruption of Flow. 7. Be mindful of the Expansion/Extension of the whole body as you inhale and the Relaxation/Flexion on the exhale to express the whole body's connection to the Breath. 8. Enjoy and Gift yourself with a "no-hurry" session. Aloha!!!
ASA's Ch'i Kung/Tai Chi Program come from Grandmaster Chan Yong Fa and is based upon the 18 Lohan Hands Ch'i Kung as taught to the monks at the Shaolin Temple in 527 AD by the famous Indian Patriarch of Mahayana Buddhism, Bodhidharma who is also known to the Chinese as Tamo (Damo). ASA promotes contemporary personal protection through a cutting edge non-deadly Force program as taught by renowned Sifu Seng Jeorng Au. This is the original self healing form of Bodhidharma. From the 18 Lohan Hands came the Martial Art forms known as Kung Fu.
